The proportions of the sectioned body are most attractive.

Have you all been following the build in Oz of the 39 Packard in the H.A.M.B. section of the Jalopy Journal? That is one build to admire too.

Recommend Diamondback Auburn Deluxe tires. They are molded in the original vintage profile and sizes, tubeless and radial construction. They can be had in whitewall or Blackwell. They are a quality product, smooth and round.

There are big problems with electric vehicles. The time to recharge and available recharging infrastructure - grid and stations. Until these problems get fixed, EVs will be a secondary transportation.

Hydrogen fueled internal combustion engines is probably the best bet. It has energy close to or better than gasoline and diesel. The time to refill is like today's refueling. A hydrogen refilling infrastructure could be put in place quicker and easier than for EVs. The technology is in place to make hydrogen burning internal combustion engines with the only emission being water.

Alarming messages and actions by governments about quickly needing to convert to EVs as the only solution to curbing carbon emissions is, to me, akin the the sky is falling.

We need to get off of burning fossil fuels as quickly as possible, but electricity is not the best and only answer. I think the gasoline internal combustion engine is going to be the main source of transportation for many years to come.

Re: 1929 640 Differential leak

jimw, many times the pinion shaft - where the seal contacts it - will have a groove worn in it by the seal. Perhaps your leak is due to a worn seal and a groove in the shaft. A couple of bearing manufacturers make a precision sleeve (Speedie Sleeve?) to fit over the worn part of the shaft. This restores the surface preventing the fluid from leaking past the seal. Check with a good bearing vendor for the sleeve. The seal is probably available from some of the vendors known here. Others may have more specific information on this.

I like the look of those '41s with the running board delete. The port hole mod, not so much.

A long shot, but is the pressure relief valve stuck open? This is easy to check as the plug for it is on the outside of the pump housing. Inside should be a spring and the valve.

Joe, you are lucky to find those splash pans and they look to be in good condition too. You will need to disconnect the exhaust pipe to install the right-hand pan. Common cap screws and washers will work for fastening them to the car.


Edit: Joe, I think your photo has the pans in their relative positions. The one with the hole on the LH side and the pitman arm will need to be removed to install it. The exhaust pipe is above the RH pan (as I recall). Sorry for the misleading advice on their placement.

Thanks Kev and wish you and your family a most enjoyable Independence Day.

The Santa Fe Vintage Car Club in cooperation with the City of Santa Fe has scheduled its first event for 2021. A 4th of July car show with 70 vehicles on the Plaza. However, after suffering through a lack of rainfall for the past two years it may need to be postponed due to rain.

Happy 4th to all here.

There are a few here who are truly knowledgeable and skilled. Their broad and deep experiences helping others make this such a great website. Kevin's time and efforts in establishing and keeping the website up to date and operating deserves special gratitude. Where would we be without it? There are many others, who also contribute to help solve problems and/or provide information. All together they all make for an active community and strong network which keeps our Packards running so they can be admired and enjoyed. Thanks to all. And, don't forget to contribute.

The surface on the drum where the seal lip runs looks to me to be worn. You can get precision sleeves to go over the worn part to restore a smooth surface. This may not be the cause of your squeaking sound, but should be looked at. The seals, if made of leather, need to be soaked in oil before installing. A dry seal may be causing the noise. Keep after it you will find the cause of the problem.

Here are some photos you may find helpful.

The Timken precision sleeve installed on the brake drum. They come with an install tool also pictured. This sleeve was a bit too long and I dressed it down to the correct length with my Dremel tool.

The tool I made to measure the axle end play. I fashioned it after one pictured in the Packard manual. The large hole fits over the end of the axle shaft and is secured in place with the axle nut. The screw is run in to just contact the backing plate with the axle shaft pushed in. Pull out the shaft and measure the distance between the end of the screw and backing plate to see what the end play is. The other piece in the photo is a tool I made to adjust the brake anchors.
